Maurizio Sarri issues challenge to Eden Hazard ahead of Liverpool clash

The Belgian has been excellent so far for the Blues this season 

Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered as one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.

The Belgium International has scored 104 goals for the English side in 307 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.

He had an impressive World Cup this campaign as he helped Belgium to reach the semi-finals and has made a stellar start to the new campaign.

The 27 year old has featured in all the Premier League fixtures so far this season for the Blues, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists. He scored an impressive hat-trick against Cardiff City and is the current leading scorer in the league alongside Aleksandr Mitrovic.

The winger was again in fine form for the London Outfit against Liverpool in the third round of Carabao Cup on Wednesday as he scored a stunning solo goal to win the match after coming on as a substitute.

The player has been heavily praised by club’s new manager Maurizio Sarri. The Italian claimed that he might be the best player in Europe and has the potential to score 40 goals this season.

However, Sarri also wants Hazard to improve in training to become the world’s best player and explained how he can improve in training.

He said as quoted by Daily Star: “Maybe, I don’t know. He is one of the best.

“I’m absolutely convinced that he can improve.

“If he’s able to improve in training maybe he will be able to use at 100 per cent.

“I think we’ve only seen 75-80 per cent of his potential.

“If he can improve he can be the best in the world.”

The 59 year old added: “More continuity from the physical and mental point of view.

“He has the opportunity to improve more and be the best player in the world.

“He’s a genius. Technically he’s the best. I want him to be the best in the world.”
